HTC Windows Phone 8X vs Nokia Lumia 920: poll results

HTC Windows Phone 8X vs Nokia Lumia 920: poll results
One of the notable events last week was HTC's introduction of its new Windows Phone-powered handsets, the 8X and 8S. Although HTC's devices have always looked somewhat different from those of the competition (in most cases - better), noticing the striking similarities between the 8X, 8S and Nokia's Lumia 920 and 820 was pretty much inevitable.

Apparently, either HTC wants to be a bit more like Nokia, Microsoft's right hand in the WP market, or Redmond has simply "worked closely" with both manufacturers to help them come up with these colorful designs of similar type. Anyways, with both flagships, Windows Phone 8X and Lumia 920, looking pretty hot, we wanted to see which side are you on. We now have the results of our poll ready, and it turns out Lumia 920 fans are vastly outnumbering those preferring the HTC. As a matter of fact, a total of 80.33% of all votes have gone to the Lumia 920, predicting a bright future for Nokia's upcoming smartphone. Whether or not Nokia will be able to capitalize on the hype surrounding its new devices, though, is yet to be seen.

I couldn't see anything of 8X that's better than Lumia 920. Oh, if HTC skip their "premium price", that can be the only one. Just my opinion.

The sound and weight are two of the things very important to me that HTC seems to be better in. Though Nokia's phone is still far far more innovative to go with HTC.

yeah but is there anything about the 920 that's better than the 8X? Why not just flip a coin and choose between the two other than the price

Well for me personally the fact its a nokia means a lot, why? cos my 1998 nokia 5110 still works perfectly well with its original nimh battery. on the other hand htc just has no tradition. and in europe we value tradition...

I really want WP8 to succeed but I cant see how this is good for them. These phone's hardware is too similar, not to mention the software is exactly the same. I think customers want more choice and differentiation between devices, Beats Audio and camera seems to be the only difference. I understand the software part, better performance/experience for the customer but Microsoft is too hands on with WP8 hardware design.

HTC sure was inspired by the Lumia range that they actually went to the extent of copying the design as well.. lol. . .wow HTC. . . I expected more from you. The design is surely good, but the resemblance is to obvious. Sue them Nokia..

I think you had missed the idea of this vote. :)

I agree. I don't why anyone would ever be concerned about weight of a phone. I mean really. We're talking a difference of 1.4oz! or 55 grams! or .12 lbs! I mean really?!? how weak are we that we need to be concerned with 1.4 oz? Especially when the vast majority can't tell the difference in that weight? This was obviously shown in the Jimmy Kimmel video with iPhone users thinking the 4s was lighter the the other 4s they had in their hand.

Just had X8 in my hand, amazing phone. I liked it and i think it will sell just ok if HTC will drope their prices cuz they are just too high. My opinion.

The only thing better, i would say, is the Beats hardware and slimmer profile in 8X. And i think Nokia's very own sound output won't be that bad. Voted for the 920...and i still think 920 is much better.

They are both the same. They will always be the same. It's just Windows Phone. No personalization. No customization. Boring.

my only question is how many units do you think any of these two phones will move? sure they will sell some but not 10 mil combined..

Why would i sacrifice Nokia for HTC. I mean come on people would buy Nokia over anything. Let's say we have Nokia running android... I'll throw my S3 straight to away to Bin...sorry that was just to nice... maybe i should try "will my S3 blend"....then i throw it away and have a Nokia running android... but now is not the case... Lumia 920 will be my next phone. Besides, when people mention can only means Lumia in their mind.

If (WP8) then Nokia If (WP8 copycat product) then HTC & Samsung If (WP8 cheap & bad battery & bad support afterwards) then HTC

Yes, Nokia, period. The votes speak for themselves.

When Nokia announced the Lumia 920, I was sold on it. NFC, PureView (although not with the 41 megapixel sensor), sensitive screen, exclusive apps, and the variety of colors. Then HTC announced the WP 8X and 8S. Beats audio, the tapered design, and the California Blue color. Nokia truly shows innovation and HTC shows eye & ear candy. I'll have to flip a coin. Samsung, where are you? What are you bringing to the table? It's been quiet on the Samsung field.

I think WP8 OS wasn't done yet and that's why we haven't seen people going into the WP8 phones and now that it's done we should start to see the OS on the devices up and running.
